Product Details

The MAX5873/MAX5874/MAX5875 evaluation kits (EV kits) are fully assembled and tested circuit boards that contain all the components necessary to evaluate the performance of the MAX5873 (12-bit), MAX5874 (14-bit), and MAX5875 (16-bit) dual digital-to-analog converters (DACs). The 200Msps DACs integrate a 1.20V voltage reference and provide a differential current output. The EV kits operate with parallel CMOS-compatible digital data inputs, a single-ended clock input, and require a 3.3V/1.8V dual-output power supply for simple board operation. Each EV kit also contains an external 1.25V reference voltage that can be used to drive the input reference voltage pin of the DAC.
